Dungeon Prospector is an old-school dungeon crawler/roguelike. You're in infinity dungeons (in length and width) full of monsters and treasures. How far can you go and how long can you survive?

To all linux users, note: unity3d is optimized for ubuntu, so it may not work on your distribution. There have already been issues with Debian and Xubuntu. So I recommend you try compatibility with the demo first.

Game features:

- Dungeon generation (Castle and cave theme).
- Over 35 items (food/potions/weapons/armor).
- 5 monsters.
- 2 Bosses.
- Rest (similar to hunger).
- Leveling.
- Permadeath.
- Crafting.

Bosses

One of features we planed from the start. To fight boss you have to find one of red doors pictured below, and open it with Key (by pressing E), which drops from monsters. Also if you have an old save (which I hope still works :| ) , then Unidentified dust should turn into keys.

After you open door, you will be teleported to the boss room. There is no escape until you kill boss. After boss been killed on one side of room will be hall to the two chests filled with rare potions and boss equipment. On the other side is a red door which will return you back where you was. Each red door can be used only once.

Items

Completely new item system. Now items have rarity and will roll random stats, which making every weapon you find unique in some way.

Items rarities are:
Grey - worst possible roll.
White - less than 30% of total possible stats.
Blue - more than 30% and less than 60% of total possible stats, will roll one of player stats (VIT, STR, DEX).
Yellow - more than 60% and less than 96% of total possible stats, will roll two player stats.
Purple - more than 96% and less than 99% of total possible stats, will roll each player stats.
Deep Purple - Best item roll ever.

Here some items and their stats:

Hall of Fame

Basically it's a scoreboard. When you die in game, you stats (steps, kills, time, depth, each boss kills) will be recorded in Hall of Fame.
It is very likely that we change it appearance in next updates.

With this update we going prebeta and in a week or two we will release next update in which we add fourth equipment item, which I hope will change gameplay a little :D

Also in two weeks discount will go from 75% to 50%.

Also, is there a minimap or just a map by any chance (or at least a planned feature of such)?

Right now - no. Metal doors will be walls for a long time. But for bookshelves they may receive some kind of 'chest' feature in next update.

Oh ok, may I ask why not? Because, my it's hard on my eyes to navigate (sorry to bother). Also, I have 2 bugs to report, some enemies are underground but can still attack and also I went through a wall and descended like 6 floors (pretty funny to have slugs beat the crap outta me at that depth :) ). Good game, though!

Right now for next updates - it's not planed. But it probably could be add someday. But it probably will be rare item which you could be able to craft/find.

I'm note this bugs for next update, thanks =]

Is there a manual for controls and how to do certain things?

Negative. Player should guess himself, how to do anything.

Really? There are some basic controls listed at start up, but seriously it would help a lot to make the game at least a little less vague. It's definitely cool, but I still can't figure out how to do stuff or at least the feature isn't done or is broken. But please leave some help for at least the main mechanics and whatnot

oh lol 'guess controls', this is could be joke xD

Actually I was planed to add ability to change controls in this update, but sadly then realised it's not possible in unity to change controls in-game. At least not in the way I'd prefer.

Here the current controls:

WASD - movement.
I - inventory.
E - use.
Esc - back/exit/menu.

Also right click on the items allow you to remove/combine them.

I better go write up a little manual and include it in 9.1

I'm reviewing the game as it stands now. If it gets better I will upgrade my score. Issues: 1 When you go into options then back out it resets the size of your screen to small whether you are windowed or not. 2 The option to set controls does not work and the controls are not mentioned anywhere. For other people: **E** is take web or open chest. When you look at a slime/blob on the floor you get a dotted line at the top of it horizontally. 3 Personal preference but I prefer retro chunky pixel games…
